Artist's Description

A glimpse into the love life of Canada Geese or “Dinnae blink or ye’ll miss it!”

Please take a moment to read the full description. Thanks!

I noticed a pair of geese swimming around in the Turtle Pond at the Marsh and thought that it would make a nice romantic shot. All of a sudden, there was a flurry of wings, a bit of splashing and the Missus disappeared! It would appear that step one (in fact, the only step) of foreplay is a quick dunking. You can just see her as a blur under the Mister.

Time: 1.14.44

The Missus suddenly reappears, a little taken aback by the looks of things. I can just hear her.

“Gasp, gasp. Jings! Ye might have warned me, ye daft gowk!”

Time: 1.14.46

There appears to be a little more conversation.

“Are ye done?? Gerroff!”

Time: 1:14:48

The post boink bugle. He, proud of his prowess; she, laughing like a drain.

Thinks: “That wiz a quickie. All o’ 6 seconds! Bloody Marathon Man, right enough!”

Time: 1:14:50

And the lovers swim off.

He: “Wiz it guid for youse?”
She: “Oh, aye. It wiz magic. Yer a big studly goose an’ aw!”
Thinks: “A sneeze and a wee fart wid huv lasted longer an’ prolly felt jist as guid….”

Time: 1:16:42

Ah! True love!
